I already had a norton antivirus installed, but it expired so I bought a new one but it won't install. It won't even open to give me the option of installing, and when I open the computer devices, it doesn't show that the Norton disc is in. I have a Dell Inspiron 400

I have personally dealt with a similiar problem in the past. The solution: run a good tool that cleans up the registry. I actually ran a couple of tools, but in the end everything worked fine.

Here we go with the complete steps to be performed.
1 ) Download the Norton 360 product using the links given below as per the version you have.CD label should ideally suggest if you have a standard or a premier .
